    How fun! and addicting! It didn't get Anne of Green Gables, but did get everything else I tried - even the Toys r Us giraffe!

    LOL! No, she's a nobody. It was just funny. The first guess was "Pauline - my daughter." I guess someone just thought to try their nobody sister before I did!

    It guessed most of mine, I was particularly impressed that it got Jann Arden, Canadian singer on the first guess.

    I stumped it with Mackenzie Allen, Geena Davis' character on Commander in Chief.

    I got my mother, father and sister. It took a while for it to answer fiancée correctly.

    He's not guessing mine. He's guessed twice already, and both were wrong.

    It guess Jennifer Aniston. He guessed Matt Bellamy (lead singer for Muse) on the second try, but did not get writer Clive Clusser (my hubs new fav writer).

    Haha, he got Justin Timberlake but had a hard time getting Jon Stewart! I've just wasted five minutes at work while I am supposed to be working on curriculum!

    I can't believe some of the ones it has gotten...it had no problem with Kyle Chandler, Dr. Quinn, Kristin Bell, Aziz Ansari, Alex Mack and others! The only ones that I have guessed so far that it wasn't able to get were Billy Abbot (a character on the Young and the Restless) and Dan Gheesling (the winner of Big Brother 10).

    It took 27 guesses to get Gene Simmons. :)

    Only took 17 to get to Mike Wolfe. I'm watching American Pickers.

    OK, I gave it a whirl & wanted it to be someone not so obvious. He actually got it on the 2nd try...Johnny Weir (whom I've talked about before on this board).

    I'm going to try this again.

    Woah, it got 3 more of mine on the 1st try:

    - Lucille Ball
    - Gordon Ramsey
    - Mikhail Baryshnikov

    After 3 tries, it never got Kim Kardashian.

    I'm hooked & I'll have my BF try this. My BF will probably see if it can guess Michael W. Smith.

    It has gotten Emma Goldman, Pippi Longstocking, Louis Pasteur, Gandalf, and Dave Lister each with just one guess as to who we were thinking of. Now my husband is trying to think of a tough one that it can't guess.

    It couldn't figure out Ursula LeGuin.

    It took two tries, but it finally guessed Kate Bush. Came close with Kate Nash, for some reason, but I let it keep guessing.

    It got Kate Gosselin pretty quickly. It asked if the character had gone through a messy public divorce.
